Once upon a time (ie. July 2011), this was a Geeklist aimed at helping me cut down my wishlist. It was worryingly popular, so I might revive the idea one day. Basically, people much prefer hating on games to actually - you know - liking them, right?

In the meantime, how successful WERE we 2 years ago?

I gather this completes the base game. But I never play the base game.

Result - I traded the base game ages ago, although I did find a replacement copy in a charity shop just last weekend. I suspect it will - again - be used as trade fodder, though.
